Phytopathology

Mycology

Basic researches are carried out in the field of physiology and metabolism of fungi that cause disease in plants. In addition, morphological and metabolic changes caused by control methods on fungi are investigated.

 

Bacteriology

Researches are carried out on the diagnosis of plant bacterial diseases and the control mechanisms of bacteria used in biological control.

 

Postharvest Diseases

Researches are carried out on various diseases encountered after fruit and vegetables are harvested until they reach the consumer, and alternative methods of combating them with chemicals.

 

Postharvest Technologies

Researches are carried out on new technologies necessary to preserve the harvested vegetables and fruits for a longer period of time and with minimum loss.

 

Chemicals Considered Safe

Researches are carried out on chemical substances (GRAS) that can be used in the control of plant diseases with pre-harvest and post-harvest applications and are considered safe with no residual risk.

 

Disinfectants

Various disinfectants are researched in order to prevent decay in products by minimizing the microbial population on vegetables and fruits or in the water in which they are washed, and to present safe foods.

 

Ozone Technology

The effect of ozone gas, one of the chemicals accepted as safe (GRAS), against plant diseases is being investigated. For this purpose, different application methods and technologies are being studied.

 

Biological Control

The effects of pre-harvest and post-harvest biological warfare agents (yeast, fungus, bacteria) against diseases in plants are investigated.

 

Alternative Control Methods

Researches are carried out on all kinds of cultural and physical control methods that can be an alternative to chemicals in the prevention of plant diseases.

 

Integrated Control

There are researches on the use of one or more of the control methods together in the pre-harvest and post-harvest period against diseases in plants.

 

Grain and Legume Diseases

Researches are carried out on methods of control against disease factors that cause quality and yield loss in cereals and legumes.

 

Olive Diseases

Researches are carried out on methods of fighting against disease factors that cause quality and yield loss in olives.

 

Culture Fungus Diseases

Researches are carried out on methods of control against disease factors that cause quality and yield loss in cultivated mushrooms and in the environment where the mushroom is grown (compost, peat).
